County sets up TulareCare for indigent patients
Porterville Recorder

As a precursor to the Affordable Care Act going into effect in 2014, Tulare County supervisors Tuesday approved the establishment of the Low-Income Health Program or LIHP, also called TulareCare, for eligible Medi-Cal patients.

TulareCare will target adults 19 to 64 years old with incomes at or below 75 percent of the federal poverty level. That takes in a large portion of those in Tulare County who have no ability to pay for health insurance or medical care.
